Top 5 Faqs About Lakadong Turmeric
Why is the turmeric called Lakadong?
It is grown in a region near the village of Lakadong in Meghalaya India. Lakadong is a very remote small village near the border of Assam. They have their own unique dialect that is only spoken by a few nearby villages. To communicate more widely they speak the broader tribal language of Khasi. Much of the farming near Lakadong is traditional slash and burn. This means that after a new wild plot of land is selected for growing, the weeds and brush are cut and burned then turmeric is planted. After a few years, the land is left to go back to weeds and regenerate.
What makes Lakadong turmeric so special?
There is a lot of speculation about this and there is no accurate answer. The opinions have to do with the quality of the soil, high altitude, cool climate, abundant rain, the ancient variety of turmeric and traditional farming methods. Lakadong Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is indigenous to Meghalaya. Despite many of its clones, Lakadong's uniqueness has never been usurped.
Where and how is the turmeric grown?
The turmeric is grown on small family farms. Typical the work is done by hand by the farmer family and a few hired hands. Due to the hilly terrain and since farms are small, using equipment is not feasible. The rhizome is harvested from the ground from Nov – April.
How is Lakadong turmeric processed?
We set up a mini processing unit in partnership with a farmer. Nearby farmers can then bring their turmeric for processing. Our farmer partner then manages the washing, slicing, drying and grinding of the turmeric. We invented simple low-cost bamboo solar dryers and wood burning dryers with aluminium heat exchangers. After processing, the farmers then packed the turmeric in a vicinity near their farm.
Do you buy from different farmers each year?
We are trying to build long-term relationships with farmers so that we can work together to improve the quality of turmeric for our customers. We go way beyond fair trade. We partner with farmers enable them to benefit from processing. They can earn more and we can create greater value for our customers.
